Male | Age: 67 | Height: 6' | Current U.S. president, former national security advisor, CIA specialist, and Marine
Jack Ryan's father was a World War II vet, and Ryan followed in his footsteps: after graduating from Boston College with a degree in economics and a minor in history, he became a lieutenant in the marine corps. However, after an incident at the age of 23 that left him injured, Ryan became a stockbroker. While working on Wall Street, he meets Cathy, a medical student who will become his wife. They have four children together. Cathy connects him with a doctor who operates on Ryanâ€™s injured back, healing him. This allows Ryan to accept a position at the U.S. Naval Academy teaching history. Itâ€™s during this time that he starts working with the CIA as an analyst; Ryan climbs the ladder to become the deputy director of the CIA. From there, he becomes involved with the administration and accepts a role as national security advisor to the president. Eventually, he becomes vice president and, finally, president of the United States.
